MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Historical Museum will re-open its doors to the public starting in June, the museum announced Monday.

Starting on June 3, people can visit the museum on the Capitol Square Thursdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests back to the museum this summer,” Wisconsin Historical Museum deputy director Mike Hollander said in a statement. “History lovers have many opportunities to engage with us in the coming months, whether they are exploring one of our exhibits at the museum, joining us for a walking tour around Madison, or learning about history with their kids using one of our virtual summer camps.”

As part of its re-opening, the museum will offer two new exhibits this summer — “Hmong in Wisconsin,” which explores the stories and culture of the Hmong community in the state, and “We Stand on Their Shoulders,” focusing on the history of women and voting in Wisconsin.

The museum will also be offering walking tours and virtual summer camps.

Visitors will have to follow certain health guidelines when going to the museum. The details on what’s required are available on the museum’s website.
